Kingspan Insulation has released a new, RIBA accredited CPD providing advice on how designers can use insulation specification to meet the thermal comfort requirements within Building Bulletin 101 (BB101) – Guidelines on ventilation, thermal comfort and indoor air quality in schools.
The free CPD provides a comprehensive overview of the recommendations within the document, which was extensively revised in 2018 and aims to achieve healthier learning environments for students.
Amongst the key changes are stricter requirements for indoor air quality and a new adaptive approach to how thermal comfort is assessed.
The presentation details the impact thermal comfort in particular can have on students, and how to meet best practice, including Part L of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) and Section 6 (Energy) of the Building Standards (Scotland).
Attendees will gain a clear understanding of how different insulation solutions can be used to meet these improved standards in thermal comfort.
In addition, the presentation also looks at new research, which links the use of more thermally efficient wall insulation with improved daylight levels within internal spaces, and the potential benefits this can deliver for student wellbeing and attainment.
